Reports of prior fights probed in lacrosse death

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Police in Virginia are investigating reports that a slain University of Virginia lacrosse player and a student charged in her death had been involved in previous altercations.

Yeardley (YAHRD'-lee) Love was found dead in the bedroom of her Charlottesville apartment early Monday. Men's lacrosse player George Huguely has been charged with first-degree murder. Police say the two had been in a relationship that ended.

Charlottesville Police Chief Tim Longo said Friday that there have been several reports suggesting prior incidents between the two, including one at a bar the day before Love was found dead.

Longo said the department is interviewing people to confirm or dispel those accounts.
